A Conversation on Cider and Prohibition at the Alcohol Professor

Though we’re passing the centennial of Prohibition, interest in Prohibition’s effect on cider isn’t diminishing. I recently had the opportunity to chat with Andrew Tobia at The Alcohol Professor site. Check out our conversation, “The Rise and Fall of American Cider Culture.”

  1. I just gave a talk at Cider Con on the myth of Prohibition killing cider, and Dan Pucci directed me to this recent post. Wonderful to see your take on the topic!

    • Maria,

      Thanks for the kind words. My conversation with Andrew is based on a talk I’ve been giving for a few years now, “Did Prohibition Prohibit Cider?” I’ve been slowly turning it into a series of blog posts (https://pommelcyder.wordpress.com/tag/did-prohibition-prohibit-cider/).

      I’m sorry I wasn’t at Cider Con for a lot of reasons, including not getting to hear your presentation. I enjoyed your post, particularly the “Endurance of the Myth” section. I’m particularly intrigued by your “hero” comments. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and for sharing my conversation with Andrew Tobia.
